To purchase the entire DVD set of the Summit Lecture Series, visit summit.org. One of the greatest myths circulating around our culture today that involves pornography is this: “It doesn’t affect me.” I teach at a Christian school, and in my class, we have many frank and open discussions.

You can’t cancel sin. You may have done a whole bunch of good stuff, but if you’ve done one bad thing, that good stuff doesn’t cancel it out. And here’s the kicker – There will be NO SIN IN HEAVEN.

Real-Stuff-My-Dad-Says-Thumbnail-BIG

[display_podcast] I have two podcasts / blogs that each come from my perspective of a Christian parent of four boys and are aimed toward other Christ-following, Bible-believing people who have a spare ten minutes in their day to hear what I (and often my dad) have to say. But lately, judging by many of the comments that I have received, it appears that my audience has expanded to people whom I hadn’t originally intended.
